  1. These are amazing, Linda. I love the way you cropped the portraits and did all that thread work. I'd love to see these in person. it's sure to be a great show.

    1. Thanks so much, Norma! I'm discovering that creative cropping is an important factor for tiny artwork ... thank you for noticing!

  2. You should try to make it up to the show. A 22' crocodile by Susan Carlson. Unbelievable!
